Hi! I’m Devin and I work at Mozilla. I’m sensibly impulsive, consistently non-committal, and passionately impartial.

My Bookshelf

We know what John Moore is reading and what’s on Kathy Sierra’s (virtual) coffee table. I decided I’d take a look and see what I’ve been reading.

Working Remotely

Next week I’m going to try working from home. It’ll be interesting to see how productive I can truly be…

Seeking Solitude

These days it’s hard to find time for ourselves. The Open Debate in the back in this month’s FastCompany struck a chord with me. Shannon, a high school senior, says the following:

Stiff Magazine Ads

Dear Marketers,

Gladwell Blog

Brand Autopsy points out one of my soon-to-be favorite blogs: gladwell.com.

Working From Home

Heather mentioned working from home the other day and I, too have thought extensively about it. In fact, Seth made an awesome point:

Blogonomics

Well, ask and you (well, I) shall receive. I’m now interning with James Turner of One by One Media and working my way towards Blogonomics.Blogonomics is a 5 day blog conference in October where individuals like Jeremy Wright, Tris Hussey, Darren Rowse and Robert Scoble will be speaking (among many other people). This should be a great trip because it’s not merely a social opportunity, it’s a cruise! I didn’t even realize cruise ships had wireless. Personally, I’m looking forward to a day of (mini) golf and some great company.

Biphasic Sleep (Napping) FAQ

I keep getting asked a few of the same questions so I thought I’d take a post to gather my thoughts on biphasic sleeping, also known as napping.

Event Discounts

Why don’t awesome events have student discounts? I can start rattling off a list of big events I would kill to go to this year (or last, or probably even next). But, they cost something like $300, $500 or even $1000-plus. Jeremy pointed out Blogonomics today. It sounds like an awesome trip. Why don’t the folks putting on big events start setting aside some student tickets? We’d love to participate, too… unfortunately some of us have to pay for a lot of schooling though. How about a send-Devin-to-Blogonomics fund? I’ll sell my soul, I’ll do anything!

Credit Question

Is it normal for a bank to extend your credit limit without any kind of request? I wasn’t able to effectively Google that particular question. Anyway, Wells Fargo just upped my limit a little bit today with no notice whatsoever. I looked around and their site said they don’t extend additional credit until you’re a customer for a year. I’ve only been around 4 months. Oh well, it’s still less than Dell Premiere is willing to risk on me, though.
